  • Twas the Night Before Christmas

     Twas the night before Christmas,

    He lived all alone,

    In a one bedroom house made of 

    Plaster and stone.

    I had come down the chimney

    With presents to give,

    And to see just who

    In this home did live,

    I looked all about, 

    A strange sight I did see, 

    No tinsel, No presents, 

    Not even a tree,

    No stocking by the mantle,

    Just boots filled with sand,

    On the wall hung pictures

    Off far distant lands.
